LG plans to bring the world’s first 3D Augmented Reality (AR) smartphone to Europe starting this summer. A phased roll-out to the rest of the world follows. Optimus 3D contains the world’s first 3D AR browser, Wikitude 3D, that works by overlaying information on surroundings, including graphics, audio and more. The browser presents these places, landmarks and objects in 3D, providing better interaction for the user.
Want to know who built the Empire State Building? Wikitude 3D includes information on over 100 million locations in the world, which should be a boon for tourists. Possible uses could also include user-generated information on lesser known hotspots, such as skate parks, trail runs or whatever the imagination holds. Record, view and share your 3D recordings with the HDMI port. Best part? It’s glasses-free. Meaning you don’t have to wear those clunky glasses to watch 3D. No seriously, you can take them off now.
Get your glasses-less 3D on on June 6 when the Optimus 3D is scheduled to be released. UK residents can pre-order an unlocked version for $795.
